Scientists from Olsztyn preparing an encyclopedia of nature for schoolchildren


The encyclopedia of nature, prepared by scientists from the University of Warmia and Mazury (UWM) in Olsztyn, will present over 150 entries on plants, fungi and animals.

About 50 academic teachers are involved in the project, including scientists from the faculties of: Biology and Biotechnology, Environmental Management and Agriculture and the Faculty of Social Sciences and employees of the University Library, who are preparing short, illustrated articles about plants, fungi and animals.

The descriptions of the species of viruses, bacteria, plants, fungi and animals, as well as various biological phenomena and concepts, as well as new scientific discoveries, e.g. microchimerism will create an encyclopedia of nature, addressed primarily to schoolchildren.
